Burna Boy has always been a fan of the late Afrobeat legend, Fela Anikulapo Kuti. Or maybe it is better to say that he is more like family since his grandfather, Benson Idonije was once Fela’s manager. Burna Boy is not only a regular at the shrine; in recent times, his music has incorporated elements of Fela’s kind of music, and his latest song, Dangote is not different.
But if the instrumentals and some lines in Dangote remind you of Fela, that is all the similarity you are going to get. It is almost certain that anyone who had listened to the audio before watching its video might have had a consistent question niggling at the back of their heads along the lines of “is Burna Boy trying to justify crime?”
